Joe Jewett: Gazette not walking the walk?
To the editor:
You had a nice editorial recently urging action on climate change. Good to see our local paper taking a stand. May I encourage you to also walk the walk?
Check out the automotive page every Saturday in the Gazette. The Associated Press reviewer, Ann M. Job, typically extols the virtues of over-priced (how many of us in reach of this paper can afford a $40 K Audi?), overpowered and gas-guzzling rides. By the standards you are urging, 30 mpg as Job often celebrates, is not going to cut it. There used to be a different reviewer but he stopped appearing a couple of years ago. It seemed like he had got religion on this issue and perhaps the car folks wanted him silenced?
